“The saving of our world from pending doom will come, not through the complacent adjustment of the conforming majority, but through the creative maladjustment of a nonconforming minority.” - Martin Luther King
I'm a huge Jose hater, but there is no point to dump him for the bobcats crap when the raps don't really have any serviceable point guards. Jack is a decent option, but not for more than 30 minutes and what if he gets hurt? Barbosa can play the point like Bargs can rotate on defense.
I hate Jose's defense and contract equally, but he is an ideal point guard to run the young gunz offense, which is going to be chaotic and in need of a steady hand. Banks is best suited to wear a suit and I have seen how quickly the raps turn to garbage without a back up point guard. Lets all just accept that Jose is grossly overpaid, forever unable to keep his man in front of him and that we are stuck with him for at least another year. Call him a high priced baby sitter, but unless a better player is coming back or he is part of a larger deal for a point guard, lets just pencil in the Jack/Jose platoon for one more run.
Now your comparisons, those are pretty pointless. TJ sucks, the fact that Indy was begging for a PG is proof of that. No one needs a PF, and by now everyone sees that 20 mil a year is ridiculous for him. Considering the few options left available at PG, Jose's 10 mil doesn't look all that bad for a team like Charlotte, who's convinced a good PG is the only thing left keeping them from seriously competing in the playoffs. And no one wants Gilbert because of a lot more than his enormous contract. Granted, some of the proposed trades don't make too much sense, but your arguments are not a good way of convincing people of that.
check this list... we dont need a star pg for your back up do we ?
chucky atkins ?
a guy to mentor JJ maybe ?
and this way JJ can be comfortable and develop his game not having to worry that every mistake means the coach is going to put jose in...

jose for diaw makes complete sense...
i have no problem if someone suggested this trade... but when you suggest damp for calderon and evans... like in post #26, that doesnt seem reasonable to me... it may seem reasonable to u but that's fine.
T.j. is an expiring so if he didn't work out for a team he would be done at the end of they year or they could flip him to another team who wants cap space.
Elton Brand is shit.
Gilbert Arenas is still a damn good player who will be on the cheap to acquire because he played a joke on a teammate.

Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
The major problem is that both want to start, both are suited to being backups, they can't play together and one guy makes twice as much as the other guy. I prefer Jack infinitely more than Jose for mostly subjective reasons, but at the end of the day which ever one makes a more positive contribution on the court should get the start. Jose I feel is better equipped to play with the young gunz, but the YG seemed to have pegged Jack as their guy. Either way there is another point guard controversy brewing in raptorland and that is the main reason I think BC is trying to unload Jose.
